Completed this hike in 5 hours with 1 hour used for exploring the Hoodos. The washout is easy to follow (look for foot prints). The hanging gate entrance requires you to lift a metal wire to open the gate. As of 23Nov18, there were two entrance gates. We didn't really find a true parking lot for 2WD, so we parked before the big dip/washout. Highly recommend hike.
